The Old Nun’s Head, London, 15 January 2019

20 Jan 2019

Bo Diddley on play and optimism for a full house greeted me on my arrival at The Old Nun’s Head. Vagaries of the London life drawing scene, however, meant we didn’t get the masses who attended the week before, but it was still busier than my last visit.

We began the session with five 1-minute warm-up poses. Artists captured loose lines whilst I created various angles. Next I stood for 15-minutes, and – with no consensus on pose times for the next half-hour – I suggested two more 15-minuters to follow.

That concluded the first half. Forty-five minutes remained for us after the break, so we started with a 10-minute standing pose. As per another previous visit, I took up one of the pub’s candle lamps and struck a dramatic, if somewhat Dickensian stance.

For our remaining 35-minutes I sat down on pillows. It was a comfortable way to close the evening. I enjoy immersing in the music played here, and the serene spell was not even broken by raucous ‘Drag Bingo’ that had come to life downstairs.

Whatever the circumstances, Nunhead Drawing Group has wonderful sessions run by very nice people with fine taste in music, set in the atmospheric function room of a characterful London pub. Recommended for a top Tuesday night in south of the river.
